enrollment application

Meher Montessori welcomes children between the ages of 2½ and 12. Admission to the Montessori program is determined on an individual basis. Parents are encouraged to enroll their children early on; but we feel the benefits of a Montessori education may be gained at any age.

Complete and submit the Application for Enrollment with the non-refundable Application Fee. If, after an evaluation by the School, your child is accepted and given a starting date, there is a non-refundable deposit required which is credited to the annual tuition.
